ready now? >> the next president of the united states, barack obama. >> we have got a chance to make history in january 3. be a part of it. make showed to show up to caucus. let's go change the world. [applause] nice t-shirt. >> given enough time on camera any person who deals with it, this is a great example of it. you will not be able to resist saying that. you are just programmed to do that. so i think these things are real and they are very endearing and we kept it up through campaign on the internet and tried to maintain that into the white house but that is one thing started to get a little rough because on a campaign we had a lot of resources and technology and things we celebrated but coming to the white house, i went from a staff of six to having a staff of one which is six times less i think. i don't know exactly. i was then not able to envision projects because what was happening, look at the first real i was showing you. isaac ululating all these awesome shots of the president punching the easter bunny but i didn't have this 32nd campaign commercial venue to put this

always get choice. i think that if romney wins, ruth bader ginsburg will try to hold on for the next four years. if obama wins, kennedy and scalia will try to hold on, but you never know what'll happen. >> can you speculate what was in roberts mind when he famously replied that the job of the justice was just [inaudible] as opposed to change the rules? >> well, that is the most quoted thing he has ever said. 80% of the time, critically about him, look, we all, supreme court justices included, perceive ourselves in certain ways and i don't think john roberts it's up in the morning and says i am a judicial activist and is trying to disrupt the united states. clarence thomas does wake up and say that. [laughter] i don't mean that in a critical way. clarence thomas lily has a very different attitude towards president than any of the other justices. justice story has senate. thomas doesn't really believe in the rule of presidents. he thinks that these decisions are wrong and we ought to overturn the mall. and that is a very different attitude than any of the other justices. roberts has an

george hw bush had greater growth in the second quarter of ?iew and still lost than president obama had in this quarter so the economy is worse off. i also know that unemployment is higher than it was under george walker bush. i can't say for sure, but i think the next highest unemployment rate that a president's been re-elected at was 7.2% under reagan. i can't say for sure, but i think it was under 6.5% for george hw bush. i don't know what the inflation rate or interest rate was, but the economy was in better shape in 1992 by any objective measure than it has in 2012 so president obama's in big trouble. >> hi, i just want to take the opportunity to thank you because you use your gifted brain and your considerable verbal skills, writing skills, energy, and fly all over. i'm grateful you're able to do that. >> my great pleasure, thank you. >> my question is what can little people, individual little people do the best right now to support mitt romney? i was a rick santorum supporter, and i'm grateful to have seen it play out. when everybody was played out, now it seems like we're al

take on obama versus hillary because i think it actually helps explain the next four years. the case for obama was not a substantive case for changing policies. hillary was making a similar case with a better resume. the case for obama was a political case. why those policies never seemed to change. implied that hillary was part of the problem. that america couldn't afford another decade of clinton wars. the political pettiness and nastiness that exploded during the clinton era was the fundamental obstacle to fundamental change. hillary's one word explanation for the persistence of the status quo was republicans. obama's one word explanation was washington. the endless than cycles, insult industries and platitudes that made tough choices and common sense compromise impossible. as a symbol and a participant hillary was inextricably linked to that washington gridlock machine. the bickering and parsing, the turtle boomer driven real mitigation of the 60s. she could never make a credible we are one people speech or bring people together to solve big problems. she tried and failed in 1994

wins, ginsburg will try to hold on for the next four years. and i think if obama wins, kennedy and scalia will try to hold on, but you never know. >> close observation of chief justice roberts, would you care to stick to what was in the primary famously replied in his confirmation hearings that the job of a justice was just -- [inaudible] >> well, he is want to say that, that is the most quoted thing he has ever said. 80% of the time, critically about him, sort of thrown back at them. look, i think we all, supreme court justices included, perceive ourselves in certain ways and like to perceive our selves and certainly so don't think john roberts gets up and more assess i am a judicial activist, i'm someone who's trying to we write the laws of the united states, to restore them, you know, to restore them to how i think they ought to be. parenthetically. clarence thomas does wake up and say that. [laughter] and i don't mean that in a critical way. clarence thomas really has a very different attitude toward president than any of the other justices. justice scalia has said this. he sai

the room, we had a real presidential contest right next door in virginia, and we could go over there and canvas and make a difference for president obama. seems to me a lot of us after that said, okay, now you're president, you go to it. that was a huge mistake. that doesn't answer your question, but it's just maybe adding to the question. i think over a period of time it really it -- it's a combination of getting more people who are community kateing in this way -- communicating in this way and all the ways, using social media and everything else, and there are people in the room who do that all the time, do fabulous work, it all makes a difference. it's organizing at the local level that we need to have that needs to get better, and the other thing is, i think, i would have thought we would have reached the tipping point by now, to use another author's term, and we have not, but my analogy, by reference to the progressive era sunlights that it's out -- suggests it's out there. .. >> my name is matthew. we don't want to -- we would also be useful and mine the data as it declines int

the next thing. i don't think obama has made the mental adjustment. >> host: so he needs to let others set the priorities for him? is that what he did? >> guest: that is exactly what he did. >> host: we didn't hear that much about that at the democratic convention, that we? [laughter] bob woodward and his new book seemed to be very much in agreement on the discussions in 2011. talk about those. >> guest: we have probably talked to some of the same people. although i have no way of knowing. here is an extraordinary moment. the republican party brings the tea party back from the dead immediate control of the congress. john boehner is the speaker of the house. john boehner realizes that he has to confront his own people if he is going to save the credit rating them back on moody's and save it from downgrade. this is going to be a political disaster. john boehner can fill in the back of his scalp that this is going to be burning on the republicans. he feels political blame but it's also worried about the country. two hearts -- two heartbeats away from the downgrade. and so, he does

that's one of the next ways, i think is using the experimental techniques to see what does move voters and get out of the sort of art official setting focus groups alone. >> host: on the note with the obama campaign since they had times four years ago to test it and four years later, is there any innovative or techniques they are using now anymore that you can -- >> guest: yeah. the experiment informed programs are really the thing. and they have been using in small narrow ways by some institutions, the cio, emily's list over the years the obama campaign has this year is a major advance. part of the problem with the way that people have tested messages historically is that you either have a poll that asking somebody who they support, and it they wills them a bunch of information. you see if moves or you ask somebody directly. if i told you romney hadn't paid taxes for x number of years make it more or less likely to vote for them. some people fell you would they move. people telling you they would move is a pretty sort of con ject yiewrl thing. i wouldn't cognitively trust anybody that
